Simulation of Water Behavior Includes Inundation and Flow on its Streambed Based on GeoSpatial Processing Functions

Hooshang Eivazy


Many organizations concentrate on water inundation [1] behavior because of its important role in different aspects of people day to day life. Prevalent software solutions to simulate have serious limitations and restrictions which make them difficult for all to be deployed. It makes the things even worse while some leave the process alone and do it with traditional manual methods. To come over the problem a new basic conceptual solution was proposed to use Geo-Spatial functions [2] in combination with traditional strength points; well form hydraulic equations and best proved conceptual algorithm to solve the hydraulic problems. The proposed solution expands a new concept to construct a computation environment [3] within GIS computation environment which simply matches the other Geo-Spatial problems. Nevertheless idea coincides some potential problems include conceptual fitness of real hydraulic environment with available geo-functions, arrangement of geo-functions in algorithm to solve the problem and tuning the geo-spatial functions proportional to problems. In this paper, mentioned points have been covered and results were proposed for a sample study area on a river part, named “Ghare-Chai” which is located in Markazi [4] province. The results’ comparison with measured observations reconfirms the wonderful potential ability of Geo-Spatial functions to solve spatial problems [5].

*2016 Journal Impact Factor was established by dividing the number of articles published in 2014 and 2015 with the number of times they are cited in 2016 based on Google Scholar, Google Search and the Microsoft Academic Search. If ‘A’ is the total number of articles published in 2014 and 2015, and ‘B’ is the number of times these articles were cited in indexed publications during 2016 then, journal impact factor = A/B.
